A Message From Our Executive Director

Good in the ‘Hood is dedicated to changing lives together with simple acts of kindness. Although our service opportunities are not solely limited to the urban community, we do have a purposeful inner-city affinity and a commitment to serve those with the most need.

We believe that goodness and kindness are inspirational, change-agent qualities and it is our firm conviction that urban renewal can begin to take place when a focused and contagious momentum of genuine kindness is made manifest. Our desire to inspire individuals, families and entire neighborhoods to take responsibility and ownership for the growth, improvement and well-being of their personal lives and community. Through partnerships and kindness-based initiatives we believe the physical, emotional and spiritual climate of an entire community can be changed for good.
